Is Peppa Pig World closed?
Paultons Park was forced to close on Friday ahead of the weekend due to the coronavirus pandemic.
This includes the popular Peppa Pig World located at the theme park.
The park said in a statement: "Given the current global health emergency, we are sorry to inform you that Paultons Park will be closing from 5pm today until further notice. This also means that regrettably, the forthcoming opening of Tornado Springs has been postponed.
"This is not a decision that has been taken lightly, however, the health and safety of our guests and employees must take priority."
They have also been forced to postpone the opening of their new attraction Tornado Springs, a 1950s style land with new rides and restaurants.
The park is yet to reveal when they will re-open – guests with tickets can visit until November 2, and are allowing the tickets to be used in the 2021 season if unable to visit before then.
Season tickets will be valid when the park opens again.
